Hello, I am graduating from University of Washington School of Dentistry in June 2015. Although I am enjoying my time in Seattle, I am looking forward to coming home to Montana to begin my career and our family. At UW SOD I was one of eight students selected to be part of the Regional Initiatives in Dental Education (RIDE) program. This program focuses on serving underserved populations. Through this program I will spend 4 months working as a general student dentist at the Othello Family Dental, Columbia Basin Health Association, Othello, WA. I have completed the DOCS Oral Sedation Dentistry Course. I have completed the Honors Surgical Periodontics Class at University of Washington performing surgical procedures such as clinical crown lengthening and mandibular tori removal. In addition to my BS, I earned my MS degree in Microbiology from Montana State University in 2008. Thank you for your time and consideration. Libby

I still am looking for a part to full time associateship. My practice has not sold in two and a half years; therefore, for the right opportunity, I will just walk away and move to Montana. My strong suits are: restorative, fixed and removable prosthetics, surgery and endo. Given compliance issues, I do not see children under 12 years of age. If you need me for locum tenens wor, call Dr. Amy Lowe in Anaconda - I worked for her for 2 weeks in 2011. I have a letter that will explain things much better. Thank you, MIKE

Type of practice opportunity I am seeking:
Hi, I own a busy private practice in southern California. I have lived and worked in big cities all my life, from Chicago to Los Angeles. I have extensive experience in private practice start up and well rounded clinical skills, whether it is esthetics, orthodontics, endodontics, and surgical extractions. When I married my husband and got to know his family in Missoula I really fell in love with the small town atmosphere. I have a strong humanitarian ethic, and I have been to almost every third world continent in my short 7 years of practice. I am ready to raise a family in a small town, and give back as well. I have experience in running a non profit, (I have my own) and I would love to associate/buy into a practice that is medium sized, ie. 5-6 chairs, and work to add goodwill to the practice by doing what I love to do, and that is to embrace my core values: transparency, meticulousness, and most importantly, love. Please definitely vet my background, and I do look forward to hearing from you! Sincerely, Nora

City, town, or area of the state where I am interested in practicing:
Billings or Missoula
Other Information:
I am originally from Billings and after a 10 year hiatus for school/work I am excited to finally get back to MT! I am planning on moving from Seattle to either Billings or Missoula this fall (2014). I am married (5 yrs) with a daughter (4 mo) which is the reason for wanting part-time initially. I have been working in Seattle as an associate dentist since graduation 2012 in a practice that does not refer out much; therefore, in addition to restorative dentistry, I gained experience in pedo, endo, and surgery. I would ideally like to work with someone who would enjoy being a partner and mentor to me as a fairly new dentist.
